Assuming no previous study in logic, this informal yet rigorous text covers the material of a standard undergraduate first course in mathematical. From this perspective the principal asset of Chiswell and Hodges’ book For a senior seminar or a reading course in logic (but not set theory). Maybe I understand it now Your concern is right: what the exercise proves is something like: if Γ ⊢ ϕ, then Γ [ r / y ] ⊢ ϕ [ r / y ],. i.e. every occurrence of.

Assuming no previous study in logic, this informal yet rigorous text covers the material of a mathemtical undergraduate first course in mathematical logic, using natural deduction and leading up to the completeness theorem for first-order logic.
Throughout the book there are notes on historical aspects of the material, and connections with linguistics and computer science, and the discussion of syntax and semantics is influenced by modern linguistic approaches.
Two basic themes in recent cognitive science studies of actual human reasoning are also introduced. Including extensive exercises and selected solutions, this text is ideal for students in logic, mathematics, philosophy, and computer science. At each stage of the text, the reader is given an intuition based on standard mathematical practice, which is subsequently developed with clean formal mathematics.
Alongside the practical examples, readers learn what can and can’t be calculated; for example the correctness of a derivation proving chiswfll given sequent can be tested mechanically, but there is no general hoddges test for the existence of a derivation proving the given sequent. The undecidability results are proved rigorously in an optional final chapter, assuming Matiyasevich’s theorem characterising the computably enumerable relations.

Rigorous proofs of the adequacy and completeness proofs of the relevant logics are provided, with careful attention to the languages godges. Optinal sections discuss the classification of mathematical structures by first-order theories; the required theory of cardinality is developed from scratch. Informal natural deduction 3.

After three years as a temporary lecturer at hodes University of Birmingham he moved back to Queen Mary, University of London in His teaching experience dates back to when he was a teaching fellow at the University of Michigan.
He spent the academic year in Germany at the Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum. He has published a monograph on lamda-trees, which are generalisations of ordinary trees. His work has connections with mathematical logic, mainly via non-standard free groups.
